Called in last Friday for dinner with my girlfriend. I had the fillet steak, cooked medium rare. The steak was cooked to perfection.
We where served by Sateer(?) and he was very welcoming and friendly.
A hidden gem in Cookstown

Visited here for an aunts birthday and to be honest I wasn't looking forward to it following a recent visit as a wedding guest. However ill be the first to admit the food was genuinely beautiful and the staff were lovely makes me think maybe I was just dealing with a bad agency staff member before. Anyway would totally recommend coming here for a meal I will certainly return

I regularly frequent the Cellar Bar for Sunday lunch when I am in the Cookstown area. Having travelled extensively I can categorically state that this is by far the best Sunday lunch I have ever tasted; A carvery service, the portions are incredible, the staff are excellent and prices are reasonable. Top tip- Book early as this restaurant is extremely popular.

Me and my wife went to your hotel for our wedding anniversary was very disappointing with the food. My wife went for spring rolls as a starter out came one spring roll for £6.95 I went for eel and all it came with was a piece of wheaten bread lettuce and two pieces of eel. We then got our main course well we're do you want me to start surf and turf is meant to be steak and fish no fish at all the steak was over cooked salmon was very dry and for the potatoes you couldn't eat them as they weren't cooked. I have rang the hotel a few times to try and speak to someone put can't seem to get them as they as always at a meeting lol. I would like someone to get back to me as soon as they can thanks

Dear stephenmulholland75

On the 2 separate occasions within an 8 day period recently that we had the misfortune of you visiting the premises, you were drunk and abusive to the managers and staff on duty who were trying to deal with what could only be described as scurrilous complaints in the first instance.

We have a zero tolerance of physical / verbal abuse directed at our staff.

We sincerely hope that going forward your shouted advice that "we'll never be ******* back" ( ***** being the accompanying expletives / foul language ) is one you intend to keep as you are absolutely not welcome.

Yours faithfully
